Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is under increasing pressure at Manchester United

A Premier League weekend packed full of goals ended with a stunning Liverpool victory over Manchester United.

As well as the usual daily dose from football's rumour mill, we take a look at the managers who could replace Ole Gunnar Solskjaer at Old Trafford if the club swing the axe.

The race to replace Ole

Ole may not be at the wheel for Manchester United much longer.

United are already eight points behind leaders Chelsea and Sunday’s 5-0 thrashing at the hands of bitter rivals Liverpool saw boos ring out around Old Trafford.

With Antonio Conte and Zinedine Zidane both out of work, we look at some of the bosses United could appoint if they choose to sack Solskjaer.

King Claudio

After a humbling first game in charge of Watford, Claudio Ranieri belatedly announced his return to the Premier League in style at Everton.

The Hornets scored four goals in 12 second-half minutes on their way to a stunning 5-2 victory on Merseyside.

Joshua King’s hat-trick stole the headlines and we assess just how Ranieri got the better of Rafael Benitez.

King’s treble was particularly sweet for a striker who failed to score a single goal during a brief spell with Everton last season.

But he is not the first player to haunt a former side in the Premier League era — as our must-read feature highlights.

Solanke’s stunning start

Much was expected of Dominic Solanke when he was coming through the ranks at Chelsea, with Liverpool then swooping to sign him on a free transfer.

But the striker failed to fire in the Premier League and is now spending a second season in the Championship with Bournemouth.

After scoring 15 times last term, Solanke already has 11 goals in 15 games in 2021-22 as he finally starts to deliver on his undoubted potential.

Now 24, is the Cherries forward ready for another shot at the top flight and to add to his solitary international cap?
